    With all the folderol about the Bruin’s schedule, the baby Bs also have their travel woes. After playing last night in Bridgeport they had to bus back home to play again today at 3:00.

    The Forsberg move. I read a Rags fan saying Frederic, Beecher and Stud are all bottom six guys. The ignorance of some bases is hilarious.

    What does it say about Senyshyn that here in AHL Season #3, he's on the 4th line with a couple of plugs in Gaunce and Woods? Meanwhile, a never-will-be like Ryan Fitzgerald is on the 1st line playing his off-wing.

    In the NHL, they are probably right about 2 out of 3. The only guy out of that trio I can envision a Top 6 forward is Studnicka.

    That’s a frequent AHL sked plan. And it usually comes with a Friday game.

    Bottom line, a lot of guys who were impressive in the first half of the season are coming back to earth.

    Absolute crap. This just doesn’t happen. It’s not how you developed a player in his third year of AHL hockey. He’s going to be hard to trade for a decent return at the deadline He has to make the roster next year or he’s waiver eligible. How do you get anything for a guy with his stat line? Oh I get he looks great some games but he is a good size guy who can flat out skate but can’t put up points. He must not have a tool box. As for a few points when called up that means squat just look at all the guys in the past who have done this. If he was the real deal he would be playing. Crazy situation

    Yup. I was on the bandwagon, and OK with the 'grooming' explanation for the first couple of years, but he's now 160+ games into his professional career and hasn't really budged, playing a position that has been a revolving door in Boston. Something is amiss. Really wish Boston had given him a longer leash at some point. At this point I can't imagine he'll have much value at the deadline except as maybe a throw-in.

    Is Providence really viewing the lines the way Driver texts them out? Is Guance really a fourth liner? It just seems like they split up the talent pretty equally most nights which would make me assume they roll out all four consistently...are his minutes reflective of fourth line when they announce the lines like this? Just asking, don't see any Providence games.

    Generally the 4 lines play about the same 5 on 5,guys like Studnicka and Senyshyn play more due to PP and PK responsibilities, same for Gaunce ,there has been times when the 4th line is a true 4th line in terms of players available and minutes played but it isn't often

    It's definitely a weird move. One complaint that I have with this management group is that I don't think they do a good job of propping up their prospects' values. The focus is on developing them to play in Boston, but you want to be able to use them as trade chips if necessary. It's also part of their drafting as well, where they value certain types of players more than other teams. That can make it difficult to make trades where you don't have players that are valued as highly. It's tough to sell a two-way player, who's ceiling isn't as high, as a valuable trade chip.

    You'd love for every prospect to play in Boston, but that's just not going to happen and and I worry that trade value isn't considered as part of a player's development because they're mostly focused on rounding out a player's game, and maybe not enough focus on improving their strengths.

    What does it say about Bruins management that Ryan Fitzgerald is a never-will-be if you recall his rookie AHL year?
     
  22. FWIW: Gaunce-Woods-Senyshyn make a pretty solid line and all compliment each other quite well, honestly. Gaunce and Senyshyn are fast, strong wingers who can move and play a high-tempo game. Woods isn’t great, but he’s strong down the middle and knows what his wingers need.

    .......”they’re mostly focused on rounding out a player’s game and maybe not enough focus on improving their strengths.” I’m confused.
